  • The Teaching Artist:

     The photography of Steven Kasich is best known for capturing vibrant images in natural environments using available light. The unique eye of the artist allows entry into often missed images of diurnal cycles of nature, water, structures, human condition and communities. A passionate soul who finds beauty in the very old to the just blossomed, captures moments in time, and preserves them forever.

    Steven has a rich background in family photography and portraiture, corporate events, photo journalism, artistic gatherings, and marketing materials. He makes wrinkles of age show depth and beauty, and crisply captures sunflowers smiling. His favorite moments are those in which the perfect shot awaits and is captured not by the artist himself but by his students. Sharing knowledge acquired over the years, and glowing in the moment of watching a student capture the best artistic moment is where his current expression is most fulfilled.

    The teaching artist provides workshops and classes enabling the novice or developing photographer to develop a comfort with the camera in both assimilating photo concepts and practicing during photo outings.  Classes are set in the beautiful hills of Bucks County, the vibrant city of Philadelphia or other desirable locations selected for their visual appeal. Steven uses a personalized and candid approach to teaching which allows images of landscapes, tiny natural elements, motion, light filtration, feelings and lines to be captured, portrayed, critiqued, artistically enhanced and presented.
